Boston Herald: "topic is still on the table" for Wolves and Celtics

From Steve Bulpett/Boston Herald:
Despite reports to the contrary, sources confirmed last night there is still life to a Celtics deal for Kevin Garnett. It was also stated strongly that the club would never make such a move before it had an agreement with the Timberwolves star on a contract extension...

One connected source believes that Garnett may not want to leave Minnesota at all, while others are saying he would most welcome a move to Phoenix if he is traded.

The word last night is that the sides are letting the dust settle before revisiting the proposal this week. It remains uncertain whether all the requirements for a transaction - agreement on the principles, Garnett’s acceptance of an extension - can be arranged, but the topic is still on the table for the two clubs.
